Wonderful winery
Aug 2020
We visited here in December 2019 and tasted 6 different wines, all very good. The waitress was very knowledgeable but it was not a stuffy experience like so many wineries.
The whole estate is picturesque and we enjoyed a very good lamb lunch in the gardens.

Fabulous way to spend an afternoon
Jul 2021
We spent a lovely few hours ~ lunching, wine tasting and enjoying a few drinks by the fire.
Viv was our host for the wine tasting - she is outstanding at her job; just delightful. For the knowledge she imparted about the history of the estate and the wines we tasted, the value was fantastic. Receiving take-home glasses was an unexpected bonus.
We will definitely return with friends to repeat the experience, and hope that we will once again have Viv as our guide.

A wonderful experience
May 2021 • Friends
Honestly the best tasting of wine I have had.

We were here as a group of 7, served by Viv on a Sunday, she was informative and a perfect presenter to the wine and the history of mission winery.

The wines tasted were a good variety - red and white and if someone was not a red drinker they had white in place.

The atmosphere was amazing and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. And viv was without a doubt the best host I’ve had. I highly recommend her.

Beautiful
May 2021
I am pleased we went. It was a beautiful sunny day but sadly there was no outdoor seating, that would have been gorgeous. We both ordered beer battered fish, generous servings with great fries and a very small salad - sadly overpriced I think. The wine with our meal was great and well priced - had to buy 6 to take home.

Excellent wine and service
May 2021 • Couples
For $10, you can try, I think it was 6 wines, plus have a free glass in a box to take home , came away with four bottles - (the $10 was taken off the cost of them). Had very attentive service, made to feel comfortable and welcome. Recommended we explored the grounds and cellar, and to relax and enjoy our weekend. Totally recommend visiting here

Were we on the tail-end of a long weekend?
Mar 2021 • Couples
We were looking forward to a special night out, however unfortunately it was pretty underwhelming.
Upon arrival we were shown to our table and menu’s given promptly. We gathered a sense of urgency to provide our selections ... however we needed time to peruse the options.
Beverages arrived in reasonable time, however mains took quite some time to arrive. At no stage were we asked whether our meals were satisfactory. One main was luke warm.
Overall, culinary flavours worked nicely.
One member ordered dessert, which was pleasant.
From a service perspective it felt generic and insincere.
Missed the mark this time round, however trust this was a one off!

Don't waste your time
Apr 2021 • Couples
The wine was below average and the cellar door host even worse.
Came for a wine tasting to be told after 5 min of being ignored that they were fully booked even though it was basically empty.
Got put in a corner and quickly offered 2 wines from the 6 to try with no explanation about the estate or the wine before the host disappeared again.
The 2 samples lacked any character, aroma, taste, fruit... Or anything that you could expect as a minimum for a wine.
Disappointing

Our server, Phillip, was absolutely stellar. He was very knowledgeable about the wines, history of the region, science behind winemaking, etc., and he was an excellent teacher. He provided great personal and attentive service, and we truly enjoyed our experience and conversation. Good luck in your upcoming marathon :)
